Davey, I'm voicing my confirmation of this bug. I unchecked everything except Explorer Recent documents and Office 2003 (in applications) See attachment.

 

Snap Taken After Cleaning (list is from log of cleaned files) Word Was closed at the time of cleaning and as always Vista SP1. I've also attached the excel menu to show that it on the other hand is cleaning.

What's is very interesting is the ACTUAL lnk files for the Word program are indeed cleaned (see third picture) but word still lists them. Maybe a new update for word changed something maybe.

Thanks Nergal. The"bug fixers" can sure use this info.

 

What happens if you have Recent Documents under Windows Explorer also ticked unticked ?

(Sometimes this helps the fixers to follow various logical paths.You may know this already)

Welcome to Piriform Ojota.

 

It doesn't clean the recent used files in Word 2003

 

I wouldn't worry about it. Every version of CC that I've used it never cleans any Office apps recent files list, not that I'm bothered. It will clean all recent files in the Windows recent list.

 

Do you have the Windows Explorer\Recent Documents ticked? That will only clean your files in the Windows recent list not office.

 

There is also another folder in

 

Documents and Settings\&username&\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Recent

 

This stores the list of all office files that you've used. ;)

Nergal please stop posting in such a hostile and abusive way to people who only are trying to help.

 

The remarks you quoted from Keithuk were not made to you, they were made to the original poster of this thread.

Hi,

 

I am using the latest version of CCleaner (2.13.720) and it still does not clean the recent used files list of Office 2003.

 

This is the registry key which contains the recent used files:

 

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data

 

 

There are different keys for the various version of MS Office.

 

Maybe CCleaner is cleaning version 10.0 or 12.0 but not 11.0?

 

Thanks in advance,

LB

I found the quick solution in adding the following to winapp2.ini (for Word 2003 only):

 

 

[** MS Office 2003 Word]LangSecRef=3021Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0Default=TrueRegKey1=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data|Settings

 

 

winapp2.ini is a great idea, I am happy now! :lol:

I have always found that CCleaner cleans my Excel recently used list for Office 2003 as reported elsewhere in this thread but not my Word recently used list. I wish it would leave both alone :o) and wonder what setting I have to change to achieve this?

 

I have answered the questions posted above in order to help:-

 

Did you reboot after installing CCleaner before trying to run it?

 

Yes

 

Did you do any Registry issues fixing?

 

Do this frequently

 

Do you continue to scan for issues until no more are found?

 

No

 

Did you do any software or hardware changes installs or uninstalls?

 

No

 

Are you running with Administrator privileges.

 

Yes

 

CCleaner version ?

 

2.19.889 (the latest at the time of posting, I believe)

 

What Language did you request at install,if any?

 

English

 

OS,edition ,32bit or 64bit and version ?

 

XP SP3 fully patched, 32bit

 

Browsers and ver.?

 

Firefox 3.0.10

 

Security software and ver?

 

Adaware 8.0.0

Spybot S&D 1.6.2.46

AVG 8.5.0.276

 

Other data you think might be relevant?

 

This is not a recent problem just relating to the current version - it has always happened

 

What did you do and then what happened?

 

See info at head of this post

 

Provide a list of your CCleaner.ini file.( Tick option for Save settings to INI file at Options > Advanced then close CCleaner.This file will be created in C:\Program Files\CCleaner folder.)

The obvious way round my initial problem of having recently used files cleaned from Excel is to deselect Office 2003 from my application list, which I have done. This does have the desired effect as far as the used list is concerned. However, does this now mean that temporary files or, indeed, any other data is no being cleared from Office 2003?
